There is a gout medication you should take to protect your kidneys and it's called Allopurinol. I took it while I was on the beginning staging; (Phone number can only be seen by the question and answer creators). The Venclexta kills the cancerous lymph nodes and rushes them through the kidneys. Check with your oncologist. You HAVE to drink 7-8 eight oz of water daily to FL sh kidneys. This may help, u hope. Again, your oncologist can advise you. Hang in there. I no longer take it because I'm in 200 mg as maintenance with no side effects. Prayers

When I was talking 400 Venclexta I too 2 with breakfast and 2 with dinner. Need to take with a meal. I started out on 20 mg for a week then 50 the next week the 100 the next week then 200 the next week and 400 the final week. Brought my white count down to normal (5000) and now I'm on 200 with dinner meal as maintenance. I had to drink 7 eight oz glasses of water to flush
I had some leg aches, took Tylenol and walked for about 10 to 15 minutes a day. I'm doing great. Hope this helps

I'm sorry you in so much pain. I've been on Venclexta for six months now and it brought my white count down to normal (5000). I have cll. I did have leg achs and rubbed my legs with CBD oil which helped. I took Tylenol and made myself go for walks. All helped me. Hope your oncologist finds relief for you. Praying for you

I found light exercise in the pool was great
and really helped with knee and hip pain.
Not everyone has access to it but if you do
try it.
